Extremely Rare 10" Walter Moorcroft 'after The Storm' Vase With Presentation Box For Sale

Extremely Rare 10

This is extremely rare ....... A Walter Moorcroft Trial 10.5 inch 'After the Storm'vase, only a very few of these vases were produced and sold during the weekend of the centennial dinner, in October 1997. This is the last design of Walter Moorcroft.

When Walter Moorcroft designed his "After the Storm" vase (available for order during the Moorcroft 1997 centenary year only),it wascaptivating! The subject, the way the design fitted the shape, the colours - everything .......... Produced in a limited edition of only 200 pieces 20 inches high, it completely sold out in a week.

This vase measures an impressive, but more manageable 10.5" high by 5.5" across the shoulders. It's one of the trial vases produced by tubeliners and paintresses as they trained for the larger version. Needless to say, there are far fewer of these vases around, than the full sized version (even Moorcroft aren't quite sure how many of these vases were produced, theybelieve somewherearound 50).

This stunning vasehas becomeso verydesirable / collectable and is only going to appreciate in value .......since beingillustrated inFraser Street'sMoorcroft book"Winds of Change"..... page 104. This vase is also illustrated in Robert Prescott-Walker's book Collecting Moorcroft page 110 and Walter Moorcroft's book 'Memories of life and living' page 64.

The design of a Scots pine with fields in the background is repeated 3 times around the vase, with each scene being subtly/slightly different, as pictures 1, 2, and 3 show.The use of colour and shading is masterful, with the overall effect being very calm, moody and relaxing. As far as I know, the only difference between this vase and the larger version is that on this vase, there are no clouds.

Don't miss out,on owning Walter Moorcroft's final design. He came out of retirement to design this vase, as his very special way of celebrating Moorcroft's centenary. It's a real piece of Moorcroft's history.

The inspiration for this After the Storm vase came from Walter and his wife Liz's journeyshome, in the late afternoons from Anglesey, with the weather clearing from the west andthe evening sun often illuminating the landscape, against the grey backcloth of retreating storm clouds.

Walter Moorcroft chose Scots Pinesfor their height, unusual formation and because their exposed roots gripped the ground like witches talons. Asked to name the design he called it 'After the Storm' which he felt encapsulated the effect and was symbolic of the fluctuations in his life.

This magnificent Moorcroft vase has no chips, cracks, scratches or restoration (first quality) ....... Just a stunning piece of pottery.

This vase does have some very slight crazing to the white base, as shown in photo 6 commensurate withit's age, nothing unusual, a very nice beautiful undamaged honest piece of Moorcroft pottery.

Atruely superb piece of Moorcroft pottery ........exquisite and really rare!!!!!!

If you're a collector, then this is an exquisite piece to add to your collection, and if you're a first time buyer, well you won't go far wrong, starting a collection, with a piecelike this.

This highly sought-afterWalter Moorcroftvase would make a superb gift and solid future investment, this is only going to appreciate in value ..... comes complete with Moorcroft presentation box.

Grab yourself an absolutes bargain ...... ...... 0.99p start ...... The last one of these vases that sold at sale made well over £1000 plus the commission.

This vase will be sent out recorded, special delivery with insurance.
